The Netherlands is halting the mission to recover victims and debris of the MH17 Malaysia Airlines crash because of fighting between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists.

It has been judged too dangerous for the team of 70 Australian, Dutch and Malaysian experts to continue working in the area.

The bodies of most of the 298 victims have been recovered but the international team had been trying to find the few who are still missing.

An international crash investigation has yet to conduct on-site inquiries.
